How?
Press BACK button few times right after white SE logo appears.


Controls:
Use VOLUME-UP and VOLUME-DOWN to browse, HOME to select, BACK to go back.


Features:

  • ADB root shell
  • Reboot
  • Install update.zip from SD Card
  • Factory reset (full wipe)
  • Wipe cache partition
  • Install custom zip
  • Backup and Restore
  • Partition tools
    • Mount/unmount partitions
    • Format partitions
    • Mount as USB Storage
  • Advanced options
    • Wipe Dalvik cache
    • Wipe battery stats
    • Fix permissions for apps (FC fix)

Automatic Installation (recommended):
To be announced

Manual Installation:
- Download and unpack the recovery package
- use Root Explorer to remount /system rw
- copy the content of the package (3 files) into /system/bin folder


Notes:
Please bear in mind that it's not the regular android recovery (we cannot replace recovery image without cracked bootloader). Instead, the boot hijacking is used to start recovery mode. You still need basic files on your /system partition to use this. NEVER use the "format /system" option (it's there only to check if anyone reads this long, boring note).

This recovery is NOT tested for compatibility with app2sd! Use at your own risk.

This recovery WILL be used to flash custom roms easily.

DO NOT reinstall busybox. Recovery depends on it's particular busybox version.


Requirements:
1. Phone must be rooted
2. Busybox from the market installed



Changelog:
0.1-beta: Initial release

This does not affect SEUS or PC companion right?

I mean we still can reflash with them also?

Thank you for all the hard work!

Some people have report issues with SEUS (when connecting to restore).

Haven't tried it myself though as i prefer to flash with bin4ry's flasher. Much faster than SEUS.


PS:Although i think that you will need SEUS again, only for the next update. :D

It does not affect SEUS flashing in any way. SEUS works on bootloader-level, which cannot be modified in any way unless bootloader is cracked :)

Cheers,

Just use Bin4ry's x10 flashtool if you need to reinstall a fresh rom. It works a treat. Make sure to download the correct version though because obviously you won't be able to load an x10i rom on an x10 mini.

This is going to overwrite my installed busybox which is larger in size compared to this one. In that case is there any chance that my "Titanium" is not going to work?
Seems that we may also get custom ROMs in future.
Lastly thanks to all who made this possible.
